Part II of our Election Day-inspired lists is all about the people that would vote for Hillary Clinton. I wanted to get a few more men on this list, and there were a few (Meathead, John ‘JD’ Dorian, Jay and Silent Bob), but what better opportunity than to showcase some strong independent women (Who run the world? Girls!), and a guy with enormous, dare I say “YUGE” testicles. Here’s 5 Fictional Characters That Would Vote For Hillary Clinton.
5. Marge Simpson – The Simpsons
Ordinarily, Marge Simpson would tend to stay out of politics; she’s pretty non-confrontational by nature, but she does seem to lean just a little bit left, though she’d probably be considered a conservative democrat. For one, she voted for Jimmy Carter, history’s greatest monster, and was completely against Homer bringing a gun into their home. While I don’t think Marge would vote strictly Democrat, I think she’s a values voter and wouldn’t vote for a guy like Donald Trump.
4. Blair Waldorf – Gossip Girl
Despite her privileged upbringing, which would lead you to believe that she’d vote Republican, Blair was actually a pretty liberal person, socially speaking. She was accepting of her gay father, has spoken on multiple occasions on women’s rights, and reacted negatively to the idea of Sarah Palin being considered a “powerful woman”. Hillary Clinton is somebody that Blair would admire as a strong-willed woman herself, and would gladly vote Democrat.
3. Randy Marsh – South Park
In 2004, Randy Marsh voted for Giant Douche, even though he was a Giant Douche, which was a stand-in for John Kerry and one of the most succinct satires of the process of electing a president. He also opposed the Iraq War. In 2008, Randy voted for Barack Obama and in 2012, he opposed Mr. Garrison’s hate-filled rhetoric and is currently looking to put an end to the Memberberries, which are partially responsible for Garrison’s success. Also, as a geologist, Randy would be more ecologically sensitive, so when Trump blamed the Chinese for the idea of climate change, he probably solidified Randy’s vote for Hillary.
2. Liz Lemon – 30 Rock
Liz Lemon is a thinly veiled version of Tina Fey, right down to her Bucks County roots, and she’s always in direct conflict with Jack Donaghy, who as I mentioned, would be a staunch Trump supporter.
Tina Fey has been on the Hillary train since 2008, and Liz would be no different. She’s a feminist icon in her own little world, as she penned “Dealbreaker”, a comic lambasting of the stupid crap women have to put up with when they enter into a romantic relationship with a man. I think she could have seen some good in the Bernie Sanders movement, but she would relish the opportunity to vote for a badass bitch.
1. Leslie Knope – Parks and Recreation
It should come as no surprise that the excruciatingly plucky Leslie Knope would be voting for potentially the first female president in US history. Leslie’s office is lined with framed pictures of the powerful women she admires: Madeline Albright, Condoleeza Rice, Dianne Feinstein, Janet Reno, Nancy Pelosi, and Hillary Clinton herself. Leslie fights for women’s rights (instituting Galentine’s Day among her friends), gay rights (marrying two male penguins and promptly becoming “Queen of the Gays” as she proudly declared), and constantly fights over the relevancy of the government with her superior, Ron Swanson. Vote Knope in 2024.
Did we leave anyone else out? Who else would vote for Hillary Clinton?
